UK Twin School Parcel Delivery - Gurkha & Palpa Districts

Please follow the appropriate instructions below for parcel posting to the two different districts.

Please limit parcel weight to the UK Royal Mail 2kg letter / small-parcel limit as anything above this will not only be expensive for the UK school to send but it will also require export documentation and result in Manisha UK incurring in excess of £100 custom release fees in Kathmandu.

Postal services in Nepal are very unreliable at any time, and even more so since the 2015 earthquakes. Small, non-emergency items can be carried by our volunteers. If you are considering sending items please contact us first for advice.

Parcel Delivery - Gurkha District

Manisha UK has only one twin school in Gurkha District so the process is simpler than the process for Palpa District and is specific to that one school.

We are aiming for a tight turnaround so that UK twinned schools receive parcels back from Nepal within 6-8 weeks of sending their UK parcel. However, we do urge patience as there are many challenges to this process, such as the remoteness of the schools from Kathmandu.

UK twinned schools should use the following 2-step process to ensure swift delivery of parcels to the Nepalese twinned school and to ensure a timely return.

Parcel Delivery - Palpa District

The following 3-step process has been established because postal services in the rural areas of Nepal are not very reliable or timely. So, the best way to get letters and parcels delivered to Nepalese schools in Palpa District is to send it via the Manisha UK PO Box in Tansen, Palpa District. The parcel will then be hand delivered by the Twinned School Coordinator to your partner school at the earliest opportunity.
